While the National Institutes of Health Consensus Conference on Calcium has recommended that all elderly persons need calcium intakes of 1500 mg/day, it also recognizes that adverse effects of high-calcium diets may occur at intakes greater than 2000 mg/day. The purpose of this paper is to highlight adverse effects of high-calcium diets that could have a negative impact on health.
